I’ll be picking a winner on December 22nd and the winner will receive an e-gift card that can be used on the Dicks Sporting Goods website or in-store.

I’m sure you’re wondering, who is XShadyside? They are an all-inclusive, family owned, boutique gym in Pennsylvania offering everything a person needs to get in shape, including kickboxing classes in Pittsburgh! If you live in the area, be sure to check them out!

I wish I could go to XShadyside, but at least I got to spend last night at my favorite place doing my favorite thing (beach + running).

After almost a week of no running it sure felt great to stretch my legs. It was hot and suuuuuuper humid out, but I enjoyed every second of it anyway.

Now that I’m wearing the SKINS active compression socks during each run I seem to be having zero calf issues. I guess I’ve become a believer in compression wear. It only took me four years to come around on it :).

I mentioned in my runner gift guide last week that I am loving my zippered FlipBelt. It’s so nice to not have to struggle to fit it into the tiny opening of my original FlipBelt. If you have a big phone (I have the iPhone 6S+) you’ll love it.

If you’ve had trouble with the FlipBelt staying put on your hips instead of floating up to your natural waistline I suggest ordering up a size. That’s what I did with this one and it’s helped a lot.

I hope you’re having a great week so far!

Be sure to leave a comment below to enter yourself into the giveaway for the gift card to Dicks Sporting Goods. You can comment anything: what you would buy, how your day is going, how you chose your pet’s name – it all counts!

    I’m glad the compreshies are helping!! That is awesome news. 🙂

    I chose the name Christmas because I LOVE the holiday Christmas. I don’t remember how I came up with the name Jelly, but I do remember driving over the Harvey Taylor Bridge to Harrisburg w/ Paul when I told him what I was going to name Jelly. He liked the idea! Paul and I had only been dating about a year or so when the kitties came into our lives.

    If I won the gift card, I would probably regift it to my dad for Christmas! Is that a bad answer???

    Thanks for the opportunity to win! I think I would get a running top. I can always use those! That’s great to hear the compression socks have helped you. It’s about time, right?

    I haven’t been in the blogging world for a while, but I’m sorry to hear that your calves started bothering you again. I’m glad the compression socks helped though. I really like compression. It helped me through some weird nerve pain I was having on the outside of my shins.

    If I win the giftcard, I’d probably get a new pair of running compression socks!

    I would get a new pair of shoes to motivate me to start running again.

    My cat is named Mitten because she has way too many toes and as a result her front feet look like she is wearing mittens. She was adopted from a shelter that had given her the name “Mitsy” which makes me want to barf.

    I would put the gift card toward some cold running gear.

  9. Ali @ Hit the Ground Running

    Ooh, who CAN’T use a gift card for some running gear?! I’m sure I could put it to good use 😉

    Two of my FlipBelts are one size, and my third is a size up. I don’t feel much of a difference but the bigger one does sit a little more nicely lower on my hips; none of them move, though! I am so freaking tempted to get the bigger size with the zipper ever since you mentioned it. I don’t need it but I WANT it! lol!

    Ohhhh!!! I would get some long running pants/tights. I have a few ‘cold gear’ long sleeved tops but need to invest in something for bottoms besides shorts and capris.

  14. Rachel

    I love the flipbelt, I have a spi belt (same idea) and it’s great for carrying stuff. If I won the GC, is definitely buy my first pair of compression socks!

  15. brittney @ corral b

    i’m kind of obsessed with carrie underwood, so i’d likely buy something from her calia line since it’s only available at dick’s!

  16. HS

    I would get Yaktrax Women’s Cozy Cabin Nordic Crew Socks .

  17. Nancy Loring

    I have been saving for a pair of snowshoes so that is what I would like to get. We have been getting a lot of snow lately and I have always wanted to try snowshoeing.
